RX Radio hosted its first Youth Music Festival on Saturday 28 September. Attendees got to enjoy a day of music and fun with live performances, good food and a kiddies play area. The festival took place from 11:00 to 17:00 on the field between Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital and Sportsman’s Warehouse, and featured several performances from up-and-coming local youth acts between the ages of 11 and 25. Majozi (Sama nominee), Idols SA 2018 winner Yanga, Jarrad (Sama nominee), and Anecnote (SA’s Got Talent winner) also made an appearance on stage.The event was organised by RX Radio Child and Young Reporters to be an event of joyful music for the youth of Cape Town and to raise funds for RX Radio. Mayor Dan Plato opened the festival. “The Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital is one of the oldest hospitals in the city and has been a leader in child healthcare for more than 60 years. Being the flagship radio station for the hospital, RX Radio provides a valuable service to the hospital community and trains young aspiring reporters to broadcast from within the hospital,” he said.It is a radio station run by and for children operating from the hospital. It is the first radio station in the world that trains child reporters to broadcast from within a hospital. A team of six staff, volunteers and former reporters (ages 18 and up) work behind the scenes to train, coordinate, and support the reporters – but the children are always behind the microphones and are active participants in the production. They design their own shows, choose the music, invite guests, write interview questions, and plan events.
